What’s the team news?

Dennis Praet is available but Rodgers will be without Daniel Amartey (ankle) and Ricardo Pereira (Achilles).

Fikayo Tomori is still out, while Callum Hudson-Odoi is also likely to be unavailable again, despite being back in training. Jorginho is available after suspension, but Lampard opted for Gilmour as a substitute against Manchester City, which suggests the young Scot could deputise in midfield.

Predicted line-ups

Leicester XI: Schmeichel; Justin, Evans, Morgan, Fuchs; Perez, Choudhury, Tielemans, Praet, Barnes; Iheanacho

Chelsea XI: Kepa; James, Christensen, Zouma, Alonso; Kovacic, Gilmour, Mount; Pedro, Abraham, Pulisic

What are the odds?

Leicester: 7/4

Draw: 12/5

Chelsea: 6/4


Brendan Rodgers’ side are due a performance and this quarter-final against Chelsea presents a wonderful opportunity for the Foxes to justify their place in third and prove their quality against an in-form side. The Blues will likely rotate with Frank Lampard possessing numerous options as he assesses his squad before the summer transfer window and hands a rest to some players after Thursday’s colossal effort to outplay and defeat Man City. There should be goals in this game with both sides possessing attacking talent, though the Blues, led by Andreas Christensen, are starting to find some consistency at the back after proving to be vulnerable throughout most of the campaign. We’ll go for a 1-1 draw after 90 minutes and the greater depth for the visitors to take them through after extra-time 2-1.
